    Sculptures by the Sea

    by RichardW » Thu Nov 10, 2011 7:31 pm

    Headed down to Bondi Tues morn before sunrise.
    After getting pretty frustrated trying to get a decent sea/sunrise shot with a Grad ND filter (got to head out with Ray for some hints) did the walk to view the sculptures.

    Some of my favs:

    Shame you missed our last mini meet although it wasn't the classic sunrise...there wasn't much sun about at all.
    What ND grad did you purchase?

    Sun's getting up a bit early these days so I've gone into hibernation for a while until it gets up at a decent hour again
    I was going to head down to the sculptures tomorrow evening to catch the full moon if it isn't clouded out which is always on the cards given a southerly is blowing.

    #1 and 2 are my picks - like the composition and the perspective and the zebras are kinda cute.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    Ray,

    I have a cheap Chinese frame grad which is too small for the 17-40. I was shooting @ F22 and using it in conjunction with a Hoya ND8 as it got lighter but may have been overkill.
    What grad are you using?

    I use the Lee grads of various intensities and a lee holder.
    They have been as scarce as hens teeth for some time now due to demand outstripping supply.

    Just noticed the time you posted your reply :oops:
    Up for another sunrise?

    Nice I was down there last night (sunset) and took some shots before it got dark, I reckon sunrise or twilight/night time would be good.

    As with Ray I use a Lee Grad (0.9 Hard) and filter holder. I think I'd like a 0.6 Hard grad too now.
